What about a vase with shells in it? or sand filled containers with votives? That will help avoid the rustic look.

Don’t remove the lanterns entirely if you like them! I would use 10 lanterns and find 10 of something else so the tables are balanced. The extra three lanterns can go on the gift table or by the guest book or on the head table or something. 

Since you’re near the bay… What about lighthouses? This DIY lighthouse is basically just two clay pots with a smaller lantern on top. Paint it silver-gray to match your other lanterns and presto!

Lizi :  I would consider the lanterns your tall centerpiece (depending on their height). Tall centerpieces like trumpet vases are a nuisance for guests. They are always having to lean left or right to see the other person’s face and carry on a conversation.

I would find a geometric terrarium in the same metal tone as your lanterns, and fill it with succulents (they will pick up on the tones in your wreath). You can add a pop of color or not with flowers, as you choose. You can add some votives.

Lizi :  what season is your wedding? For some I am feeling fall/winter from your centerpiece mock-up and I think it’d look really pretty if you spray painted some pumpkins white (maybe with a touch of silver) and used them as vases:

This would fit the colors/feel if the season is right 🙂

You could mix it up with hurricane vases and candles as pictured below. I’m assuming there will be a candle in the lanterns too?
